Our Zoe is very proud of the banana bread she's made

It's still the holidays for the kids even though us grown ups have to work for a living. We've been trying to make suggestions of exciting things to do and today Zoe made a banana loaf with her sisters. She's very proud of it and here she is showing it off. We'll get to taste it in a bit!

Dramatic fire last night

This fire on Adelphi St wasn't rioting but I think people had illegally been dumping tyres on one of the "development opportunity" sites between the road and the river. Presumably kids had started the fire. It certainly caused quite a stir with the smoke being visible for miles and I had one call from a concerned friend checking that it wasn't my house on fire!

Message from my daughter when I opened MY computer!

When I got in from the pub quiz I saw this message - I'm impressed by her creativity, lots of people would make do with a post-it note! She's busy uploading video. We won the pub quiz, although in the doldrums of August, there were actually only 3 teams. Steve (Landlord of the Crescent) still gave us the usual amount of beer tokens, thanks Steve!
